    @wndrrd, I tried your link. Everything went well until I got to the last step to flash the phone back to the stock roms. It started the flash process then said:
    USB Connection Established
    Flashing
    Device QFUSE Check OK!!
    ...PrimaryGPT
    :: Error ::
    F0000002

    Then the status area turned red and said Download FAIL!! (30sec)

    Now the phone will not go into download mode. It still boots to ClockworkMod though the backup I created after installing ClockworkMod disappeared. Any suggestions on how to proceed?

    Here's the trick:

    0. MAKE SURE THE PHONE IS OFF. THEN:
    1. Press both volume buttons (up + down)
    2. With both volume buttons pressed, THEN CONNECT THE USB CABLE. The phone will "boot" to Download Mode.

    JJ Kairos: I've been trying to update since I got the phone in August, no dice. Always get the 'not yet registered' bologna.
    I had to download the AT&T firmware file for the July update and install it manually (which involves a factory reset so be warned!), since I did that it took the latest update just fine and dandy. You and I might have gotten a bad batch.

    I posted instructions somewhere around here for doing the manual update. It's using AT&T's firmware image, so it's not rooting or a custom ROM or anything, just stock firmware.

    Is it anywhere that lists what the Benefits are of the update(s) so those interested know if its worth being bothered? I apologize if that's already been listed above.

    The one for July is the benefits listed in this thread. No one seems to know the benefits offered by the latest version other than a couple of Google updates (Play Services, etc)

    I used the XDA thread to flash back to stock and the LG flashing tool wouldn't recognize the AT&T software because it was in TOT file and not a kdz file. I had to flash the Panama E980 file which worked and had to manually set the LTE through the dialpad. How did everyone get the ATT file to flash????

    I used this link to get the files: [GUIDE] [E980] Fix soft bricks. Flash back to stock using LGFLashTools - xda-developers There are better instructions elsewhere on the process. I had no problems flashing the AT&T software. The only issue I has was getting the phone into download mode without corrupting the download. Most instructions call for holding the down volume and plugging in the USB cable. For me this started the download before the cable was firmly seated which resulted in a failed flash. I found instructions which called for plugging in the USB cable then holding the up and down volume button and pressing the power button until the device powers down then releasing the power button (all the while holding the volume buttons). This gave me consistently good results. I really like this phone. It is great to be able to restore it to its original condition reguardless of what had been done to it before. If only some one could make files for the current release.

    The biggest thing for me is that it fixes a problem that caused the lock screen to display the incorrect time. It is truly a minor update.

    Thanks. I'm sorry I used a different guide on flashing back to stock. Yeah you have to hold the volume down and power button at the same time after turning the phone off and then connecting the USB cable, while keeping the buttons pressed to go into download mode. I will try this guide instead. Sorry for any confusion.

    I'm having the EXACT SAME problem now as you...I have the LG OPTIMUS G Pro running on T-Mobile, but can NOT get updates...Have you solved the problem? If so, how?
    Thank you for ANY help!

    Need help my g pro is unlocked and on tmobile, everytime I try and connect to server to update it says device not registered is this because it not on ATT and wont be able to get any updates unless im on ATT, im on the per paid plan with tmobile so any advice would be of great help.
    I had the same issue with my e980 unlocked phone and tmobile told me that if you have a UNLOCKED phone you can't upgrade the software. I couldn't use the hotspot either so what I did I rooted the phone myself (which was a pain in the but) and now I at least able to share my hotspot data with other divices since I have free hotspot data from tmobile included in my plan. Now, I have to figure out how to update the software, it's my understanding that that's one more plus when you root your phone, you can update before everyone does...I'll see how that goes. I hope my answer help you, good luck.

    Downloaded 67.71mb (pretty sure that was the size) software update for my OGP. Not sure what it did just yet. Software version went from E98010k to E98010P. It did update my gtalk to hangouts .



    Sent from my LG-E980 using AC Forums mobile app

    Same here. I even went into the AT&T store. They had no clue and spent an hour trying to figure it out. Even though the phone has a registered IMEI number it shows as 0. They even switched out the sim. Same issue. Told me to go to LG support and use the PC Suite tool and I could force the update. Downloaded everything but the LG software doesn't list the E980 as an option and won't recognize it. Great phone, but AT&T didn't carry them that long. Only thing I can think of is since is was offered for such a sort time, it fell through the cracks and no one made or kept up with support for it. Driving me crazy. Rooting make the phone to glitchy, not worth it. Wish we could find an answer.
